I think, as a painter, you know you’re work is done when you lose interest…

Yes, it’s complete and I must say that I’ve come to the conclusion that the only part of this painting that the viewer looks at – at least from the comments on Facebook (mostly male)- is this guy’s dick and its size.  Well, that was blunt, wasn’t it?  It prompted me to rework his scrotum, which, of course, made me more than a little self-conscious – where previously I had no reservations.  Geeze.  It is done – but now I think his head is too big!  ha!

oh, by the way…

I suppose this could have been cheerier.  But alas, I’ve been more than a little annoyed with media manipulation and the plan to have an “unaware and compliant citizenry.”
